"Unfortunately due to gathering restrictions, my team has made the difficult decision to postpone all of my headline “Bring My Flowers Now” tour dates through the end of August; new dates will be announced soon. My heart is absolutely broken knowing that we have to wait to be together again. However, I know, it will be all the more sweeter once we can do so safely. For anyone needing a refund, please contact your point of purchase. Otherwise, hold onto that ticket as I promise to throw one heck of a party when we are allowed to! Those who hold onto their ticket are also in for a sweet surprise that we are cooking up! Keep an eye out for an email in the coming weeks that will have details. Please everyone be safe and stay happy and healthy. Can’t wait to see you again very soon. Love, Tanya"
I don’t guess I’d given a lot of thought to what my life would have been without the great song, "Delta Dawn." But this morning I started thinking about it a lot with the passing of songwriter Alex Harvey. The song started everything off for me and has kept me going ever since. Even though my record was released in March of 1972, the song is still just as great 48 years later! I am so sad today with tears flowing. I thank God for him, his song, my life, my career and my fans - as I find myself grateful and thankful knowing my life would have been so different without the iconic "Delta Dawn" and her creator Alex Harvey. I know Alex was a man of God, and today he got his wings, to that mansion in the sky! Thank you, Alex. I’ll meet you there someday, when it’s my time to fly! An indebted, Tanya Tucker
